Sapling inventory

A lectern is a utility block found in Villages.

Source

Lecterns may generate in certain library buildings within Villages, as long as the village was generated after the release of update 1.14.

Mechanics

A lectern is not only decorative, but can also hold a Book and Quill, which multiple players can read at the same time. Right-clicking on an empty lectern with a book and quill selected will place the book and quill on the lectern. Right-clicking on the placed book and quill will open it and allow multiple players to read it simultaneously. Right-clicking the book and quill again will turn the page.

A lectern with a book and quill on top can emit a Redstone signal through the use of a Redstone Comparator. A redstone signal is produced each time a player turns a page. The strength of the signal is based on what page is being shown. The comparator signal produced by a lectern is 16 minus the current page. If the book is open to page 16 or greater, it will produce no signal. If there is a lectern in a village, but there is no librarian villager, there is a chance that a villager without a profession will convert to a librarian.
